Crimean Tatar leader Mustafa Jemilev appreciates the Order of State award of Turkey he was conferred with in Ankara April 15.
“I appreciate deeply the order I have received in this hard times. Of course, it won’t make Russian tank leave Crimea, still it shows that 80 million Turkish people support Ukraine and does not recognize the annexation of Crimea”- he said in interview to Ukrainian 5 Channel.
To recall, Turkish President Abdullah Gul conferred Mustafa Jemilev--Crimean Tatar leader, former head of Mejlis of Crimean Tatar people--with the Order of the Republic Medal of Turkey in a formal ceremony held at the presidential palace in Ankara.
The ceremony was attended by head of Mejlis of Crimean Tatar people Refat Chubarov, vice head of Mejlis Aslan Omer Kırımlı and Ukrainian presidential candidate Petro Poroshenko.
